These little girls are less than 2 weeks apart in age and were so fun to watch. Bronwyn would go one way and her cousin would be about 10 paces behind. One would dig in the rocks and the other would be about 4 feet away doing the same things. It was so cute; to the tree, over to the the water, in the gravel, on the steps, around and around they went. One following the other but neither talking or playing with the other. I think this is what is meant by parallel play.
We got them to sit next to each other for a few pics and at first Bron was stiff as a board while her cousin was giving us cheesy smiles. After a bit she loosened up and it was so cute to see the girls laughing together. One would make a funny noise or laugh then the other would mimic it. Back and forth again. It was so cute.
I just love little girls.
